Re: Relics and you!

I certainly don't recall seeing any red tape on Maelstrom!

That being said, and I know it's extra work to do so, but mebbe Maelstrom should get a stab tip next time it's rebuilt?

Yo, Thrush & other hockey nerds...

http://www.wimp.com/throwsstick/

Krefeld Pinguine hockey player Kevin Clark makes an incredible behind the back blind pass to teammate Adam Courchaine after he loses his stick. The blind flip backwards of Courchaine's stick by Clark is not something you typically see from a teammate.

Re: The Rogue 2.0

I like the "6 hour assassination, but only once in a 24-hour period" idea. Prevents griefing.

Don't get me started on multiple casters, or any other class for that matter. Fighting cheese with cheese makes us all, um, curdy.

Re: Abandoning Land

I see you're working on this again. Personally, I see no reason to track ruined settlements--just let it go to dust, and it takes the usual time & expense to start a new one. Especially with a village, where a lot of the buildings might be clay or some other natural, easily degraded material. Bu...

Re: New Relic/Campout Prize: Skidbladnir

It's a very cool idea, although the Land Marshal's job is enough of a pain in the ass without having to keep track of who's got the cool boat this week. If it did go forward, I'd like to see it (or rather, the riders) be able to be attacked. There's enough other benefits (like no upkeep cost) to con...

Re: Warboss Gutzmangul: Attorney at Law

Having been present at his defense of Rae-Kwon, and having been an official judge when he won the debates at the World's Fair, I can attest that Gutz would make a fine barrister should you find yourself in need of one.

I would also love to see him in a powdered barrister's wig ;)

Re: Scroll Potion Change

My first thought was allowing undated stuff to work for one year, but now I prefer the idea of having it dated if you want to use. Then people with their big hoards of potions and scrolls can meter them out and make them last, but each single item is still only good for a year from the first time yo...

Re: Crown War style campout event

It sounds interesting, but I think there will need to be some stuff to stretch stuff out. Otherwise, some may be tempted to play it just like a day event Crown War, which is over in a couple hours. Some thoughts-- 1. One thing that will stretch it out is the use of adventure-only skills, if people t...

In most private organizations and Not-for-Profit entities (to include every one I've ever been a part of), even the Executive Board meetings are open to membership. It is the Magistrate's job to set the agenda and maintain flow of the meeting. Large meetings always have more voices, but preventing D...

Change starts with serious discourse. Do something. Well said.
